Are you excited for another long weekend ahead? I know I am! Let’s you all get settled and relaxed for the next three days with a beauty roundup that has gotten us planning our next vacay, vamping up our skincare, and thinking about growing out our locks. Oh yes, we’re dishing on blk’s travel-inspired lipstick collection, ColourPop’s sister skincare line, Chanel’s bold move into the realm of male beauty products, and BeautyMNL’s latest Kardashian-approved product. We’re also shocked and saddened to say goodbye to a beauty icon - we didn’t see that coming!

Talk about cute and socially responsible! Shop the entire collection here.
Give Me Some Sugar(bears)
When it comes to selling out a product, the Kardashians have decidedly mastered their own little formula. From slimming teas to clothing, waist trimmers and skincare, the Kar-Jenner clan are experts in the field of social media advertising. Which is why it’s no surprise that the famous teal-colored gummy bears they’ve been popping have now made their way to the PH shores, thanks to BeautyMNL! The Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins (which the Kardashians and Jenners apparently swear by) are packed with biotin, zinc, coconut oil, iodine, folic acid and Vitamins A, B C and E, promising stronger, longer and shinier hair. You can now grab a bottle for P2,000 here.

Naked No More
In an announcement that has shaken the beauty community, Urban Decay has revealed their decision to discontinue their bestselling NAKED Palette! Considered the OG of nude palettes, the 12-pan eyeshadow has been a kit staple for makeup lovers for the past eight years, and cemented the brand’s reputation as a top choice for beauty. It has even been estimated that one NAKED palette is sold every six seconds!
No explanation has been given but Urban Decay founder Wende Zomnir has stated, “I will forever miss Naked, but we plan to turn the grief into even more greatness. Urban Decay will continue to thrive in Naked's memory and honor — just wait and see.” The brand has already put the palette on sale from $54 to just $27 on its website, as well as on Sephora, as it prepares to phase out the product. If you’ve never tried this cult fave or consider it as your HG, now is the time to hoard!
The press release also disclosed that a “funeral” would be held at Newport Beach, CA, to be attended by Kandee Johnson, Christen Dominique, Katy DeGroot, Shayla Mitchell, and Chrisspy. A eulogy would be given by Nicole Richie, but for all those who won’t be able to attend, Urban Decay has released the video above.
